Farm Life on Field and Fell

 

Reviews:
Alfred Hall has ploughed his way around the world, sowing sound advice and reaping friendship. Now aged 92, Alfred's farming expertise has benefited people in many countries, for which he has won countless awards and admirers...

Alfred started his farming life at Seaton, near Workington. At the age of 30 he began a parallel broadcasting career with a report about sheepdogs for the BBC. He worked on a freelance basis for the BBC and Granada for 25 years, reporting on rural life and farming...

In this attractive book of short stories and essays he paints a picture of farming life as he has known it... His book is a manual of old farming practice, full of life and incident, and good, rich, agricultural humour, in the best sense of the term...

He helped to found the World Ploughing Organisation and was its general secretary for more than 40 years. In 1960 he and his wife Dr Jilly Krause left Seaton and moved to Loweswater... Since his retirement he has written three books... and was awarded the MBE in 1997. Cumberland News, Feb. 2007.
